Abstract (in English)

When the British came to India as traders and started their activities as East India Company in 1639, the Portuguese had already made Goa the capital of the Portuguese Empire in the East in 1530 and introduced colonial architecture in India. Theirs was a Portuguese baroque confined to their territory. So colonial architecture in India had become synonymous with that introduced by the British.
